Icarus


Icarus Shawl, originally uploaded by elemmaciltur.

Started: 24th April 2007
Finished: 03rd April 2008
Needles: 3.5 mm / 80 cm Addi Lace circs
Yarn: Rohrspatz & Wollmeise Lace-weight, 100% superwash merino, 300g Hank (530 m / 100 g), colour: "Poison No. 5"
Pattern: "Icarus" by Miriam Felton from Interweave Knit Summer 2006

First hand-spun knit up!

Start & Finish: 25th January 2008
Yarn: My own hand-spun, "Bracken Ridge" from Ewe Give Me The Knits
Needles: 4.5 mm / 60 cm Addi Turbos
Pattern: Simple 25 stitches garter stitch, inspired/copied from Brooklyntweed's Espresso Scarf
Notes: I'm using the navajo-ply at each end of the scarf...so it's a bit chunkier there. I'm using three traditional deer-horn button commonly used in traditional Tracht here in (Bavaria) Germany. And yes, they are made from real horn and not the cheap-o plastic imitation...these ones cost about EUR 4 each.

C'est un papillon!
